How do I submit my documents?
National Police Certificate (NPC)
Your NPC and student ID must be certified by a Justice of the Peace (JP). During Program Information Enrolment Sessions (PIES) on the 5th and 12th February 2014, JPs will be available. JPs are also located in the student hubs around campus.
Once you have your NPC and student ID certified by a JP you must scan (or using your mobile device photograph) this document and email it from your UoN student email address to HNELHD-ClinConnect@hnehealth.nsw.gov.au with the subject line "UoN Degree Year lastname.firstname.studentnumber NPC".
If you do not have your NPC by PIES you must still get this certified by a JP and submit as soon as you receive your certificate.
During your placement you MUST keep your NPC with you at all times.
Bulk Compliance Day with NSW Health staff will be held during May 2014. Information dates will be disseminated via your Placement Officers. All documents will be checked at this time.

What if I have only completed some of my immunisations?
Where only partial vaccination has been undertaken for hepatitis B, i.e. at least the first vaccination, you may be eligible for temporary verification and should still submit your documents in order to attend placements. All other specified diseases require completion of your vaccination prior to clinical placement.
What Happens Then?
If your application was not successful you will receive an email from the Local Health District indicating required amendments (e.g. insufficient immunisations, Mantoux/Tuberculin Skin Test (TB) testing required). You must complete these as soon as possible and submit any additional documentation required.
